Fremont Baptist Church has a long history of mission giving. Today that giving focuses on our immediate community and on the world outside our area. Let me cite a couple examples of our local mission giving:            
•  Each June we participate in the Fremont Street Fair by erecting our “Orange Booth” and offering coffee, lemonade and water to fair-goers. We also rent our space in our parking lot during the fair. One hundred percent of the money donated at the booth or taken in at the parking lot is donated directly to our local food bank.
•  On the first Sunday of each month we collect a benevolence fund that helps those in need.       
•  On the second Sunday of each month we collect food items  - the items needed now for gallon Zip lock bags are individual fruit cups, cheese or peanut butter and cracker snacks, instant oatmeal packages and things like hand warmers, and space blankets for  when it gets cold outside.  •  Back-to-School supplies are collected at the beginning of each school year and donated to B. F. Day School to be distributed to new students who are without supplies.   • Under the late Mabel Brockhoff's direction, we, as a church, responded to Church World Service by packaging hygiene kits as part of a worship service. We now make them for needs in our own community.

On a broader scale, we also participate in the four traditional American Baptist offerings that include:            
•  America for Christ
